More casting call models
{lifestyle child portraiture}

I am getting close to wrapping up the casting call for redhead children -- if you know someone who qualifies (0-17 child with red hair near Atlanta), let them know right away; details on my website (http://www.shutterview.com under Specials).

Here are three recently photographed beautiful children (yes, during this blustery Atlanta February!):

Baby G is here!

birth photography atlanta

Sweet, lovingly anticipated baby Miles was born today at 1:37pm, weighing 7 lbs 14 oz and measuring 19 3/4 in.

His birth was incredible, and I am still amazed by the power and inner strength his mommy has shown throughout labor. I am equally moved by the love and tenderness so evident in the relationship between Courtney and Warren. She was clearly anchored by his presence and he was remarkably in tune with what would make her feel better at all times.

Truly a privilege being there with you, guys. May you continue to delight in one another as your circle of love expands.

Laboring at home:

Fashion and good looks
{atlanta family and baby portraits}

One afternoon in late December I got to photograph this beautiful family. The little girl was just turning one, so the session was focused on her, but the bigger siblings got some time in the spotlight as well. This family packs some serious good looks!

Here is a gorgeous storyboard which is now hanging as a gallery wrapped canvas in their beautiful home:

Here are more beautiful redhead children photographed over the past few weeks:

Workshop for parents and grandparents of small children - registration open, space limited

click here for the pdf flyer and send it to your friends or help us pass the word on Facebook!

Note: no fancy camera necessary, to get a lot from this workshop! Also, by popular request, note the date change!

Give It Your Best Shot

Oana Hogrefe Photography is offering a child photography workshop for parents of small children.
To be held April 24th and 25th, this two-part class will cover tips of camera use, composition and subject interaction as it relates to photographing infants, toddlers and preschoolers.
Oana will spend the first part of the class on Saturday morning, in her home studio, going over the most relevant aspects specific to her genuine and evocative style of photographing young children.
Sunday afternoon she will give hands-on guidance as parents put in practice the information while photographing their own children, at an outdoor location.

Oana strongly believes that truthful imagery has a unique power to refocus families on the beauty and love in their lives.

While custom professional photography is an essential way to showcase the ages and stages of the children as they grow, there are unique times and fleeting moments in the life of every family when the photographer cannot be present.
The role of storyteller can then be undertaken by family members, to create memorable keepsakes that bridge the intervals between professional sessions and help weave a complete and meaningful memory log.

workshop parents photography oana atlanta

The space is limited and priority will be given to parents of children 6 and younger. The cost is $95. A second family member can join for only $45 (limit one extra person per family).
The spaces will fill quickly. Reserve yours today.! Call Oana at 404-509-7715 or email oana@shutterview.com Payment in full will secure your participation.
There will be goodie bags for children and special gifts for parents.

The fire within
{atlanta preschooler portraits}

A quick thank you to the two brave little girls (3 and 5 respectively) who came for their redhead sessions on Tuesday despite it being in the high 20s and quite windy. Amazing how many wonderful images we got, these are just the first two that caught my eye.

A quick reminder that Monday February 15th the option to purchase a high resolution file (from your 2009 or older session) for $75 expires. No minimim purchase with this offer -- only four days remaining. Let me know and I will reupload your gallery as needed.

A favorite from a set of images I took last year of my best friend's kids. Currently stuck under snow in DC, so maybe this reminds them of sunnier days!

Birthday fun
{atlanta special event photography}

While my primary focus is on lifestyle child photography, once in a while I will cover one-of-a-kind child birthday parties.

Here are some highlights from a beautiful party, for a beautiful little girl. Themed Tea Under The Sea (Mermaids and Pirates), it was orchestrated by the amazing Jennifer with Posh Tot Events.

I love the aqua/green/turquoise decor!
